Sneak a peek at the 'Simpsons' season premiere, in which one character will die

26 July 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In the Sept. 28 season premiere of The Simpsons, a familiar character from the animated comedy will meet his/her maker. Is it Homer? Of course it’s not—that would be dumber than… well, Homer in pretty much any situation.

But in this scene from the episode, which was screened at the Simpsons’ Comic-Con panel on Saturday, he looks to be in pretty rough shape. See for yourself in the video below and then begin wildly speculating about who will be six feet under by the end of the episode, titled… “Clown in the Dumps.”

D’ohn’t just sit there scratching your head. »

Watch: First Trailer for Dazzling Festival Smash 'Whiplash,' Starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons

24 July 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It made a splash opening Sundance, wowed Cannes and will likely get awards mentions later this year -- so "Whiplash" will leave a mark. Watch the first trailer ahead of its Toronto Film Festival play this fall. Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons star for writer-director Damien Chazelle ("Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench" and scribe behind this year's "Grand Piano"), playing respective 19-year-old drummer-protégé and tough-as-nails mentor locked up at a Manhattan music academy, pitted against one another in the attempt to become a percussion legend. This intense, high-anxiety film has been described as "'Full Metal Jacket' with drums," with ferocious lead performances and a fine visual palette. Amidst the fare that typically comes with a fall season, Sony will give "Whiplash" a release on October 10.  Watch our exclusive video interview with Miles Teller here, and read our »

10 Movie Characters Who Stood Up To Their Bullies

24 July 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Everyone has either experienced bullying or known a bully at some point in their lives. It’s this universal experience that has led to the history of cinema being littered with horrible bullies, from Back to the Future’s bone-headed Biff Tannen to the fast-talking insult machine Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket. These characters make it their mission to belittle and hurt people who they think are below them, sometimes using violence to assert their dominance. Bullies are evil, plain and simple.

Thankfully, filmmakers love to give evil characters their comeuppance in the end. For every horrible cinematic bully, there’s an underdog willing to stand up to them and give them a taste of their own medicine. Sometimes the retribution comes in the form of violence and even murder, but often a triumphant speech of defiance is all it takes to send a movie bully running for the hills. »

Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight says Daredevil will have a “gritty 1970′s New York feel”

22 July 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With filming underway on Marvel’s first Netflix miniseries Daredevil, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight took a moment to talk about the upcoming series during last night’s world premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy in Hollywood, promising a “gritty 1970′s New York” feel to the show.

“We’re going for a very kind of gritty, 1970′s New York feel for the show. We love the idea of beauty in the decay of the city and Hell’s Kitchen being a place that is both horrible and beautiful at the same time, and that’s why Matt Murdock loves it so much and wants to protect it.”

You can watch the red carpet interview with DeKnight here…

Daredevil is set to arrive on Netflix some time next year, with a cast that includes Charlie Cox (Stardust) as Matt Murdock, Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket) as the Kingpin, Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) as Karen Page, »

Here's Awesome Proof That Every Movie Is Better with More Batman

11 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

We’re firm believers that a little Batman makes pretty much everything in life better – and now there’s a hilarious Tumblr blog reaffirming that belief on a regular basis. It’s Better with Batman takes famous images from TV and film and places the Dark Knight himself into them, showing how much more awesome everything would be with Bruce Wayne’s involvement. Don’t believe us? Check out some of these examples… In this first image, we see how Stanley Kubrick’s classic Vietnam film Full Metal Jacket would have looked if R. Lee Ermey spent the Paris Island segment screaming at Ben Affleck’s Batman instead of Private Pyle. Look how sad Batman is.   With all the catching criminals and handing out beatdowns, it’s...

Photos and video from the set of Marvel’s Daredevil

9 July 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Currently in production, it didn’t take long for a few photos and video from the set of Marvel’s 13-episode series of Daredevil which will air on Netflix.

The images, posted by Latino-Review, were sent by GeniusMovieMind who said that the series is going under the fake name of “bluff” (as in, Blind Man’s Bluff”). In the video, you can hear a young Matt Murdork screaming, “I can’t see” while some extras look on.

Have a look at the images below…

Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.

Daredevil features Charlie Cox (Stardust) playing the blind lawyer / superhero Matt Murdock, Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket) as the Kingpin, Elden Henson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and Rosario Dawson »

The Definitive War Movies: 10-1

2 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here we are, at the top of the mountain. We’ve had plenty from every war imaginable, some supportive of war efforts, some not. But the more interesting war films really focus on the people; the internal struggles those men and women have about what they are doing. Whether made in America, Germany, the United Kingdom, or anywhere else, war is not just a battle between good and evil. It’s a life and death struggle between opposing sides that may not be that different. The movies at the top of this list may be subtle or straightforward, but each of them is a clear snapshot that lets audiences see what it means to fight, so they don’t have to.

10. Paths of Glory (1957)

Directed by: Stanley Kurbick

Conflict: World War I

Before Stanley Kubrick grabbed the rights, the source material for Paths of Glory had a long history. The novel, »

The Definitive War Movies: 20-11

26 June 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Top twenty. Now we start to see the more widely recognizable films that people have some emotional attachment to. World War II gets a few mentions in this portion of the list, but this is one of the more diverse sections, overall. We get a mention of the Boer War, the Algerian War, and the Korean War, as well as the only movie about the American Civil War on this list.

20. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)

Directed by: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Conflict: Boer War, World War I, World War II

The only film on the list that spans multiple wars is also probably the least battle-focused film on the list. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp is told through an extended flashback, following Major-General Clive Wynne-Candy (Roger Livesey) as he rises through the ranks of the British military from war to war. The flashback is »

Remembering Anton Furst, Gotham’s Dark Architect

23 June 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When Tim Burton’s Batman hit theaters 25 years ago, it was more than just a pivotal film in the superhero genre. It was a pivotal film in any genre — largely due to its phantasmagorical sets and vehicles. The 1989 vision of Gotham City, the Batmobile and the Batwing all sprang from the dark, fertile imagination of the film’s Oscar-winning production designer Anton Furst. Watch some of Furst’s earlier films and it’s easy to see how his and Burton’s aesthetics would play well with each other. For The Company of Wolves, Neil Jordan’s 1984 horrific take on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, Furst created a world that merged storybook fantasy with gothic gloom. For Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, he created crumbling sets and morphed actual locations in the UK into a war-ravaged Vietnam. In Batman, Furst’s vision would synthesize fantasy and realism into a dystopia crawling with life. Like »
